Employment Opportunity -- Apply Within
I need to hire someone to do purling for me. *laugh* Oh my gosh! I know I'm new at knitting -- only two scarfs done so far, but I have the HARDEST time purling. Especially that first stitch on the row. I can knit 3 rows in the time it takes me to purl one.

PLEASE PLEASE tell me it gets easier!

It does...it does. Of course, after I finally "got" the hang of it, I was halfway through the wristbands in Stitch N' B*tch when I realized I had been wrapping the yarn the wrong way. So half of my star band has a funky, bumpy texture, and the other is smoooooth stockinette. I keep it to remind myself that I was a beginner once, too.

A year and a half later, I don't even have to look at my hands to make a purl stitch and I purl almost as fast as I knit.

Don't worry...you'll get the hang of it.

I so need $$$ right now, how about 2 pennies per stitch? :D Quite the bargain, as when I was making jewelry I charged 20-25 dollars an hour! lol.

WOOHOO! I tend to knit between 11pm and 3 am. See you here tomorrow. Fastest purler wins.

Purling is just EVIL I tell you.

You are MEAN! It snowed (lightly but still snow) all day today here. I don't want to hear about 70 degree temps!
